Sebastian Vettel has made it clear he will never apologise for winning the controversial Malaysian Grand Prix last month. The German tried to draw a line under the incident in which he ignored instructions from team principal Christian Horner not to pass team-mate Mark Webber for fear of jeopardising a one-two finish.

Webber was angry he had to give way to Vettel when he was in position to win. Vettel apologised to him and Red Bull on a number of occasions shortly after the race but makes no concessions for the type of driver he is.

Vettel said. "I apologised to the team straight after for putting myself above the team, which I didn't mean to do. I don't apologise for winning. That is why people employed me and why I'm here."
